This is just a brief note on my love for the beautiful vegetable called asparagus. I got 2 bundles of lovely young and slender asparagus for $3 at the market this week, and it was the best I've had. 2" of water in a frying pan and boil snapped spears for about 5-6 minutes for a nice tendercrisp. It was so sweet.
And, as a pre-emptive strike, I don't want to hear from any of you lame English majors responding with innuendos of phallic imagry.
